Video: The trailer for The Counsellor is the coolest of the year so far…

One of the best casts we've ever seen in one of the coolest trailers of the year...


Boasting one of the most impressive casts in recent memory, The Counsellor has a lead in the very slick form of Irishman, Michael Fassbender.

Directed by Ridley Scott, it also has a script from one of the most admired writers in modern literature, Cormac McCarthy, who simply delivered a script off his own back, on spec to his agent, that resulted in every A-list name in Hollywood wanting a piece.

Said script is about a lawyer, moonlighting as a drug dealer. When a shipment goes missing he must answer to some nasty cartel types and deal with the complications on his personal life. Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz and Penelope Cruz also star.

The trailer is the coolest we’ve seen this year; the cast is absolutely spectacular, and they’ve got Ridley ‘bleedin’ Scott directing.
